I just wanted to thank all of you for your kind words, thoughts and prayers of comfort. We are, obviously, heart broken. It's so frustrating to have done all of these treatments only to end with such certain finality. I know that our issues with high DNA fragmentation make this situation a more likely outcome but it does not decrease the pain of another failure.
While we will be taking some time to recover we will be moving on to adoption, possibly embryo adoption/donation and/or traditional domestic adoption. Of course, just because you stop fertility treatments does not mean to stop trying and praying for a natural miracle. We'll be exploring some other natural options as the adoption process can be long. We have sp.erm and I do ovulate on my own so maybe with time we'll eventually have the right sperm meet the right egg...that is what happened with Hammer. It took his parents 14 years before they conceived him and I can tell you that they were definitely not putting forth nearly as much effort as we have been.
This blog will not end it will just change a bit. I welcome you all to follow along with us as we continue to walk down this long and winding road to becoming parents. You have been such a support system for me that I could not imagine continuing on this journey with out all of you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Mr & Mrs Hammer
